The main attractions in the area are Sharp Top Trail, Apple Orchard Falls Trail, Harkening Hill Trail, Abbott Lake, Peaks of Otter Lodge & Fallingwater Cascades Trail and of course the Blue Ridge Parkway.

Great Falls and Harper's Ferry are both incredibly unique terrains in this area. Any view of the Falls won't be a bad one and Maryland Heights Trail is the classic Harper's Ferry picture.
